Sleepy Bears

Sleepy Bears

by Mem Fox Illustrated by Kerry Argent

Winter is here, and in winter, bears sleep. But how do you convince six not-so-sleepy bear cubs to go to bed? Mother Bear, of course, has found a way: with a cozy rhyme for each of them. Once again, beloved author Mem Fox enchants little ones — and their parents — with a tender bedtime story, irresistibly illustrated by Kerry Argent.
